"fox & friends" begins right now. ♪ >> o'reilly-- >> good sunday morning, has o'reilly done "saturday night live" before in he may have been parodied, but i don't know that he's ever been on before. either a very good actor or he was genuinely not amused by the skit. >> clayton: that skit is a recurring thing, what's up with that. >> alisyn: because you get up
6:02 am
so early in the morning. >> clayton: thee three minutes on top of that, dance. bill o'reilly sitting there uncomfortable. what did i get myself into. >> he knows what he got himself into. >> dave: we start with the race for the white house and the g.o.p. nomination, rick santorum, is he the current front runner? you can debate that, but he's stepping up his attacks on both president obama and mitt romney and he's not backing down and he's talking religion. >> this was a little bit-- he was in ohio going after the president's space. >> it's not about you not about your quality of life, not about your job. it's about some phony ideal, some phony theology. not a theology based on the bible, but no less a theology. >> clayton: a pretty harsh
6:03 am
statement basically saying that the president, maybe his policies are outside of the christian value system and the obama administration didn't waste any time in firing back against that. they say that the latest low in the republican primary campaign that's been fueled by distortions, ugliness and searing pessimism and negativity. going after someone's faith. i don't know if few politicians tread in that area, if they believe or don't believe something. >> he's made-- santorum made some lightning rod statements, income inequality. >> clayton: he didn't qualify. >> dave: these were misinterpreted by some. rick santorum was later asked, are you saying that the president is not a christian, rick santorum says if he says he's a christian, he's a christian. >> he need to clarify what he said. >> clayton: what santorum--
6:04 am
he's going to be on sunday shows, but he's saying that his policies are out of the christian value system talking about the green energy jobs and bailout money, outside of the christian value system. didn't necessarily come across in the first statements and later clarified that. >> dave: and also taking aim at mitt romney and for romney, it's not the first time that he's had a very successful path questioned by a fellow republican. this time, we haven't heard a lick of this from a republican, rick santorum criticizing mitt romney's time turning around the 1992 salt lake city winter olympics. here is what he said. one of mitt romney's greatest accomplishments, one of the things he talks about the most how he heroically showed up on the scene and bailed out and resolved the problems of the salt lake city olympic games.
6:05 am
he heroically bailed out the salt lake city game by going to congress and asking for tens of millions of dollars to bail out the salt lake city olympic games. [applause] >> in an earmark. in an earmark for the salt lake olympic games. >> clayton: for their part, the romney campaign doesn't dispute that federal money was used to help. >> dave: and always is for every. >> clayton: they also don't dispute-- they point out that rick santorum voted for the very same ear marks that allowed the salt lake city games to get out of the quandary. the romney camp firing back on santorum's olympic comments with this barb. sometimes when you shoot for the hip you end up shooting yourself in the foot. the romney camp says. a pretty big gulf before
6:06 am
seeking 9/11 security and for polar bar exhibits at the pittsburgh zoo. >> dave: interesting attack line for the santorum campaign. i was surprised when the republicans went after the venture captain private equity side and surprised at the olympics. the biggest thing that romney did was raise a lot of private money and they just separated at the point years after one of the most successful winter games in our history. and in utah polling really, really high and a higher favorability there than their native son john huntsman in the state of utah during that primary following that's been done. >> speaking of native sons, newt gingrich is banking on his home state of georgia and he's been down there, you know, interestingly enough, when you look at the straw poll, the atlanta area straw poll, guess who comes out on top? we were just talking about him. rick santorum. newt gingrich second place,
6:07 am
but-- >> very surprising, i think. >> yes. >> it's been a good week for rick santorum, the polls started on valentine's day, it was a sweet polling term for rick santorum on valentine's day and the latest suburban atlanta powell 40% head intoed that. and it will be the third time is the charm thing in fact, back again. >> clayton: this is newt's territory and the most delegates in the republican primary so far will be up for grabs in georgia during this primary, 76 in georgia, which is more than florida. >> dave: more than ohio, even, which is also on super tuesday and this is clearly the place that newt gingrich has circled, here comes my comeback, it comes in the south on super tuesday, most notably in georgia. >> the georgia conservatives have an advantage against tennessee, kentucky, alabama, you know, arkansas, mississippi, louisiana, in the
6:08 am
long run, we survived tim pawlenty, who was the establishment's first choice and then we survived congresswoman bachmann and survived with herman cain, a great surge for a while and survived governor perry and i think we'll presently survive santorum. >> clayton: herman cain out there on the campaign trail as well for newt gingrich down there in georgia. >> you know is also on the campaign trail. >> clayton: who is that? >> there were suggestions that chuck norris would be out, and i don't know, we've got-- >> you need the fighting spirit. >> i need to call nigh people. >> clayton: according to the associated press, chuck norris is going be to be showing up with hill. >> dave: newt gingrich made an issue of the gas prices and if he's the nominee, one of his platforms talking how high gas prices are today and under his administration he, he would bring them down. we're seeing the highest gas prices in our history for this
6:09 am
time of year, if you live in california boy do you know it and feel it because your a hitting four bucks a gallon on the left coast. >> clayton: they already did, 3.53 right now a gallon, up 21 cents since the beginning of this year and remarkably you think, hey, it's got, it's a brutally cold winter, right, we've had snow and home heating oil is through the roof. >> dave: no. >> clayton: no, it's been a very mild winter and people are not turning up the thermostats as high. all the of the prices not driving it. middle east tension is what analysts are saying, tension in the middle east. >> we've been complaining about this, and a problem with the high gas prices, don't we. you're driving that huge hummer and-- >> he drives a semi. >> clayton: you've got three kids. >> please. >> dave: no, no, gas surprises are often a political football. we remember the bush administration, and those on the left went after president bush almost on a weekly base
6:10 am
sits, made it a huge campaign issue how high the gas prices were, do you remember? >> lets democrats in november. if you doesn't like the outrageous gas companies if you feel the oil companies have been given a free ride by the president and vice-president, vote for democrats who will vote for changes in our energy policy. we've got a democratic alternative. give us a chance. >> and george bush gotten his hands around this problem he when he first took office, prices would not be $3 a gallon, but $2, or 1.80 a gallon or 1.50. >> the bush administration policies, big oil over the consumers have resulted in record dependence on foreign oil leaving american families in business to pay even higher prices. >> and with that music-- >> listen, going back to the nixon administration, presidents have been saying we're going to lower gas prices, elect me, we'll lower
6:11 am
gas prices. nixon, where are we now shall 2012. karl rove talked about the media standard, going after one president and not another. >> we won't hear much from the media, the other thing to touch on, remember, bush was pounded because the media was willing to mauck it an issue and jobless recovery at 5 percent unemployment the media made it an issue and lets he be honest, the media is complicit with the president now. so, there you go, the media double standard that seems to always hit on -- or we heard it week after week after week, open the oil reserves, and everyone was pressing george w. bush to open the oil reserves and the same thing hasn't been helping. >> dave: can a president lower gas prices? is a president responsible for the pain at the pump. that's open for debate. we'll have a former ceo of shell oil on later to talk about why prices are so high and what the president can do
6:12 am
to maybe lower them. >> let's get to other headlines, dave, if that's okay with you. >> dave: please do. >> you're looking at brand new video out of st. peters square, where pope benedict is conducti conducti conduct prayers. earlier he celebrated with the 22 new cardinals, you watched it on fox. former archbishop and now cardinal timothy dolan, the head of the defacto church america and responsible for electing a new pontiff. a man with a suicide plot inside the united states capitol. he spent a year planning na foiled attack and considered targeting synagogue and restaurants. he allegedly traveled to multiple states to plan the attack and even going to west virginia to detonate a test bomb.

>> dave? >> are you ringing up about there? sing about this. coming up, let's talk about teachers unions and a new deal just inked here in the state of new york between mayor bloomberg, governor cuomo and the teachers unions how you could get rid of troubled teachers in the school system. >> dave: right, it's a new teachers evaluation format. pretty good long-term when you consider we've needed a way forever, especially in the state of new york, to evaluate teachers and not the have to keep them forever regardless of how their students perform, so in the long run, pretty
6:27 am
decent system. in the short-term, this could be an epic disaster. >> juliet: yeah, basically what it does, kind of wipes the slate clean. so, here is is the numbers here. 7,000 teachers basically are off the hook, now, for problems that they've caused. 2600 plus teachers, with one poor rating, not fired. so, basically, you've grandfathered in. >> clayton: the issue is this won't take effect until 2014. and we've got two years for the stuff you're seeing on the clean. wiping the slate clean so two years, in the meantime, 7,000 teachers off the hook and even includes those-- this even includes, sorry. >> dave: a party going on in the studio. >> clayton: and this even includes those rubber rooms. if you saw in "waiting for superman" the famous documentary of teachers basically this trouble and basing union violations and get to sit in the so-called rubber rooms for a long time
6:28 am
and not actually in the classroom and don't get fired and teachers for basically two years sitting on their rump and they're not able to get fired. >> here are some of the examples, bad behaviors, one teacher called students a devil's spawn on facebook, and ten years a teacher was banned from class, still in six figures and a teacher inappropriate, 85,000 a year. right. >> dave: you have to sort of resit t restart the system, but to wipe the slate clean, it seems like a misfire in the short-term. and 70 million dollars the taxpayers are on the hook for. >> clayton: bottom line, potentially, you can't get fired in the next two years, you can do pretty much anything in the next two years. >> dave: and a problem facing most states in the country. how do you put in a new system
6:29 am
for evaluating the teachers in the right way without happening in the past. if you have any ideas. >> juliet: i don't understand. >> clayton: if you want to lose weight, why are you putting the cake in your mouth now, put it down now. >> dave: they needed a new reason to give in. this is what they want. >> let us know what you think at friends@foxnews.com and there's the twit ter as well. >> dave: and the pope wrapping up the mass at the vatican and joined by 22 new cardinals, including timothy dolan. >> juliet: for more on that lauren green in the news room. >> good morning, guys, used the mass to consecrate the new cardinals just ended and normally doesn't generate that much attention in the united states even when there are american bishops elevated to cardinal. but this story has gotten attention because of timothy dolan, he is the rock star of this class of cardinals. among 22 new members of the
6:30 am
cardinals, the princes of the catholic church elevated in an elaborate ceremony at the vatican at the attention on dolan has another reason, highest ranking, as archbishop in the big apple and also because of the showdown with the obama administration over mandates and he was asked by the pope to deliver a reflection to all the cardinals in the behind the closed door session and all this have and down to earth demeanor and humor made him a media magnate in rome and he spoke to the throngs of press in typical dolan style, typical of his new york home. >> it's a great day for all of new york, this is the hat i'm going to put on the empire state building and yankee stadium and lady liberty, for all of new york. >> today the mass the cardinals were all in white. that's pope benedict xvi, but
6:31 am
he talked about the unity of the church and those who rise in the church rise to chur of and there is archbishop dolan, well, cardinal dolan. 214 cardinals and nl 125 are under 80 eligible to vote in the next conclave which chooses the next pope. the next pope will be among the cardinals, guys. >> juliet: thank you very much, lauren, great to see you. now to other stories making news. while you were sleeping, north korea threatening to attack south korea or alleged military drills near the border and the north got wind that the south would be conducting artillery drills sometime tomorrow and if that happens they'll consider it quote, a reckless provocation and respond mercilessly. so far, south korea is not commenting on the reports. you'll remember the south conducting similar drills at 2010 at that time. the they're responding with a massive artillery bombardment.

6:37 am
from eastern kentucky through central portions of virginia, higher apartments are expected along the mountains of virginia and also, west virginia, we can see up to eight or even ten inches of snow out there. temperatures will take some time to drop though, so it's going to take time for that snow to break out in the area with that snowstorm system and it's not moving into the northeast, new york city, you will stay dry today and also to kick off your work week, further to the west, 60 your high in dallas, 64 in houston and a high at 70 in laredo, a quieter day across texas. yesterday, a lot of rain, today, sunshine and pleasant temperatures. click ahead we have quiet across the great lakes and sunshine, detroit 34 for your high, 40 in minneapolis and 48 bismark and looking as unsettled weather further offer to the west with current, snow across portions of the inner mountain west up to a foot of it is possible above 8,000 feet. guys, that's pretty high up. not too bad. now, let's go over to dave.
6:38 am
>> thank you very much, maria, and somehow, i said andrew lin. jeremy lin. it's a lack of sleep, i've got a newborn at home. gave me a break. meanwhile, president obama's reelection campaign shifting focus from romney to santorum and obama campaign recently sent a letter to supporters in pennsylvania asking them to submit damaging stories about g.o.p. candidate rick santorum, will it help or hurt mitt romney? joining me now to discuss is our political panel, fox news contributor, angela mcglowan, robert george and steve levy. good morning to you guys. >> good morning. >> dave: angela, is this bad news because is the obama campaign saying this inevitab inevitable front runner, no loaning longer the case? >> look, obama and his administration, campaign guys are very good they'll take on both of them. you asked the question, is it good they're going off rick
6:39 am
santorum for mitt romney, yes. if you look at the last primary, everybody's going off mitt. now, mitt can concentrate on going after obama, and instead of newt gingrich and rick santorum, win this nomination so he can run against obama. >> dave: steve, what will they go after with rick santorum. >> whatever they're going to get, it's the same thing that romney pretty much already has so i don't think-- >> is it though? >> i don't think it's going to make much difference because whatever they get they're going to internalize anyway. he they do not want to hurt rick santorum, he they want santorum to continue to rise so that these two guys and many more are battling up and beating their brains out the next several months and actually in the end in november they'd rather be running against santorum than romney anyway. >> yes. >> dave: is that the case, robert and what will think use against rick santorum. the washington post says he's too conservative to win the nomination? . not necessarily because the republican party is a
6:40 am
conservative, is a conservative party and rick santorum sings the music of social conservatives. so, he's-- he can certainly win, can certainly win the nomination. i would think though romney is not necessarily going off santorum the way that the obama people would. because romney is not going to attack him on social conservative issues because that's going to offend the base. that's one area they can go. but, and i think, there were other areas where they're going to start looking at his background, like there was a mini scandal in his last turn in the senate when it turned out that, he was basically living in virginia, even though he was getting like a sort of credit-- >> this is what they're going to do. there's no smoking gun on rick santorum, but the sound bite yesterday that inequality is good, we need inequality, also dealing with the contraception issue, the fact that he's pro-life. so what liberals are going to
6:41 am

6:47 am
winter, but it's been a mild winter and heating oil. the numbers up 91.5% from 2009 to 2012. from january of '09 to right now. >> right, when i'm looking at that the first thing i think of is something we got from our senior editor over at the fox business network, he was noting that during the first 37 months of the bush administration, versus the first 37 months of the obama administration, so, bush had a rise of 12%. obama, 95%. so, gasoline prices are soaring, and all the networks should be covering this, something that americans if, you don't have-- if you're paying at the pump you don't have money for groceries, for clothing or whatever else you want to buy. >> clayton: you know good journalism as you're digging through the numbers. who, what, where of the story is so important. so why, why is this happening? why are they going through the roof? >> why are the numbers happening? >> rocketing at the pump. >> we don't have an energy

6:54 am
at this point we really, the constitution and document so old that it no longer affects what we do in the constitution. we have two, the large c constitution, and a small c constitution, political parties nor where in the constitutional document. they're a part of our government and the agencies that people deal with and the things in the constitution that don't really govern the reality, for example, the electoral college, that's not how we choose our president. so it's not surprising that other countries wouldn't copy the u.s. constitution given it doesn't describe our own system. >> justice ruth ginsburg of the supreme court said i would not look to the united states constitution if i was drafting a constitution in 2012. she recommends the south africa constitution, canadian charter of rights. other countries are not copying our constitution as it were, but i don't think it should be treat today a popularity contest.
6:55 am
whether it produces a stable government that protects basically religious freedoms and our basic fundamental civil rights, those should be the grounds to test and i think on those grounds the american constitution fares well. a government that stands the test of time and oldest continuing in use constitution and i think that's all favor about constitution. >> sherry, do you think that david does have any point? >> i actually think that justice gyps burg and some of t of-- ginsburg, and the points that he made, our liberty, we have structural procedures and we give limits to the government and all the rights are retained by the people. >> juliet: and david, the last word. the constitution may be part of a general decline in american power and prestige.
6:56 am
explain that. >> so, i can't speak for the new york times, and i'm not sure where she thinks we're reading the state of the world and constitution, but when we say in the paper that the united states influence is waning, we are a point to go a theory that some people hold. we're not able to prove or disprove that, or purport to, but we can show that the u.s. constitution is, not a document that others copy. it's not surprising because even if you wanted to copy the u.s. constitutional system you wouldn't start with the document at this point. >> friends@foxnews.com. i feel a feeling a lot of our viewers are weighing in on that. and we appreciate you waking up early on a sunday morning. he alerted the morrocan money plotting an attack on the u.s. years ago and the former landlord, plus, who is it the greatest president in history? and the answer may surprise you, that's coming up. we'll be right back.

7:04 am
>> clayton: governor huckabee also says i never question a person's faith. what's in their heart you can't possibly know, but when your actions are part of the, you know, the public discussion and i think that's what senator santorum clarified he was speaking about that. >> juliet: let us know if you feel that maybe that's going to alienate people who are religious, who are towards the president. >> dave: certainly a cultural battle going on. >> juliet: another battle between rick santorum and mitt romney. let's listen to what mr. santorum had to say about the olympics and mitt romney's involvement in saving the olympics. >> he bailed out the salt lake city olympic gains, heroically going to congress and asking for tens of millions ever dollars to bail out the salt lake city olympic games. mra (applause) >> in an earmark. in an earmark for the salt

lake olympic games. >> dave: now to be clear, olympic games, in fact, all of them in my knowledge do require public money and mitt romney was ten years ago, they just celebrated the ten years anniversary of the salt lake city games and a success. and what mitt romney said about the attacks. sometimes whoa you shoot from the hip you end up shooting yourself in the foo: a pretty wide gulf seeking money for post 9/11 security at the olympics and seeking earmarks exhibit for polar bear exhibits at the pittsburgh zoo and santorum has been hit hard for ear marking in the state of pennsylvania. the best thing romney did in salt lake was raise money from the private sector, millions and millions of it. >> clayton: and about security making sure they had the proper security for them in the games and a major concern when you've got thousands and thousands of people pouring in there. for the post 9/11 era.
7:06 am
an interesting back and forth there. in utah, romney's favorability through the roof and polls show he's more favorable than john huntsman the former governor of utah. >> it seems like that's more his home state than michigan, michigan is where he was born and trailing santorum. and to your point doing well in the state and arizona as well. >> juliet: newt gingrich's home state was georgia and he was visiting the atlanta and shaking hands and kissing baby-- well, popular guy down there, not as popular as i cording to the straw poll, santorum coming outen 0 top with 40. gingrich 27, paul and romney. >> clayton: much is made of the straw polls and attacking mitt romney over the cpac, saying i don't stack straw polls or the fact that romney bussed in a lot of individuals. the straw polls you pay to go
7:07 am
into. how much weight you put between the few hundred people inside one of the straw polls, but in newt's back yard, 40% is a sizable number. >> dave: i'm sure he'll tell you atlanta area snot much representative of the staut of georgia. much like in florida. newt did well in northern florida. an interesting breakdown, but newt gingrich clearly betting on the south on super tuesday, in particular his home state. here is the strategy. >> a georgia conservative has a certain advantage across tennessee, kentucky, alabama, you know, arkansas, mississippi. louisiana. in the long run, we survived tim pawlenty, who was the establishment's first choice and then we survived congresswoman bachmann and then came back survived herman cain, had a great surge for a while and came back and

did they? did they take it up or-- >> they have to do a job and treat all in fairness not doing anything. >> and i accused him of making bombs, fit that profile, i don't know for sure, but suspect he's doing something illegally. and so the police went in to investigate. and well, there are several not very important details, but-- >> the best detail of all, they spent a lot of time tracking him, watching him. monitoring him and then now we know how it ended up, with a fake bomb, watched at every step and arrested at the very end ap perhaps thanks to your eagle eye on all of this, frank. >> well, i was-- i worked for many years to have, to have to have a security awareness. >> clayton: yeah. >> and i worked at the, patent

7:25 am
do and i'm going to complain until the end of time. that's what he wants and frankly due to his own rhetorical skill. pretty good at getting away with it and in addition to the media bias plays a part as well, but he does tend to have it both ways on a lot of issues and i think he'll continue on. >> and the republicans are in a tough spot there. if they opposed payroll tax cut extension, they're hammered as the party against the middle class. >> and if you have to off set it or won't and democrats wouldn't go for it with fairly easy thing like freezing frl pay, i think a good solution and democrats wouldn't go for it, but the president is hunky-dory with that being unpaid for. >> we'll see this, the tension of the bush tax cuts the end of the year, the president in 2010 pushing for the extension is going along with it, even when he was campaigning against letting it roll back. is that where the hipocracy
7:26 am
comes from, is that why the right is right on this one? >> it's sort of transparent that he ended up going along with it and nows' back to bashing them as much as ever and there's a philosophy, you do not have to offset the bush tax cuts, because if you say it's pay for every tax cut. you're presuming, your money is the government money. that's not a loss of revenue, it's your money you're getting back. i'm not sure they have to be paid for, but him paying on both sides is hypocritical. >> let's talk about the boeing plant, a major political issue a couple of months ago, boeing wanted to move a major plant for the dream liner down to south carolina where they weren't required to have unions. nlrp, supposed to be independent and has direct obama appoint east was challenging the building of that plant and was going to shut it down and suddenly the president is talking up this very plant. listen to what he said this week. >> the dream liner is the
7:27 am
plane of the future. and by building it here, boeing is taking advantage of a huge opportunity that exists right now to bring more jobs and manufacturing back to the united states of america. [applaus [applause]. >> your thoughts? >> this one cracks me up. you don't get credit, if you have your boot on someone's neck, you don't get credit for lifting it right before they choke out. that's basically what happened. the nlrb says this isn't america anymore, you can't move factories lily nilly to any states. the and they force add deal with the machinists union and now we'll remove complaint and freely building in south carolina and the president bragging about this i think is a new step. he's first gotten credit for saving creative jobs, and jobs likely existed and mythical now credit for the jobs that
7:28 am
he actively tried to destroy. >> and after he finished that line that we just talked about, you heard people applauding, so, does this resonate with the base and is that all that matters now? >> i think his rhetoric largely works when he says they are he' made in america and fine and dandy. and he only wanted them made by his friends and unions in washington. south carolina can, you know, jump off a cliff. that was the issue. do people know the nlrb issue in depth? maybe not everyone, but that's why we're here and that's something that he needs to be called on and frankly he isn't called on it nearly enough. >> mary katherine, read her in the daily caller, and weekly standard and 5 a.m. in d.c. thanks for being here. >> clayton: coming up on the show. espn apologizing to jeremy lin this morning for a major foul. explaining the headline controversy next. . >> dave: and have you ever had a first date from an online match like this?

>> democrat in november, if you don't like the outrageous gas prices, if you feel that the oil companies have been given a free ride by the president and the vice-president, vote for democrats who will vote for changes in our energy poly. we've got a democratic alternative. give us a chance. >> and george bush got his hands around the problem, prices wouldn't be, $3 a gallon. it would be 1.80 a gallon, 1.50 a gallon. >> and the administration poy for big oil have resulted in record dependence on foreign oil, leaving american families and businesses to pay even higher businesses. >> juliet: he was on the show yesterday and talking, we had asked him about this and he says the media-- this is what he had to say. >> we won't hear much about it from the media, the other thing we should touch on here, remember, bush was pounded because the media was making an issue and pounded about
8:09 am
making a jobless recovery at 5% unemployment the media willing to make it an issue and be honest with about it, the media is complicit with the president right now. >> and we asked karl, isn't it true, the president can't do much about the gas prices and in market and he disagrees, no, george w. bush did do something about it, opened up federal lands to more drilling and did a lot of that and the question is, well, where is that now? why isn't taking effect now or see the the numbers dipping now. >> dave: we will ask the former shell ceo who joins us in the nine o'clock hour to tell us why gas prices are so high. meanwhile, if you're not up late and missed "saturday night live," you missed bill o'reilly, the most of the o'reilly factor making an appearance on a game show. >> juliet: what's one that. >> dave: check out the performance. >> bill o'reilly. >> yes. >> you've written a best selling book on one of our

>> welcome back everybody, 15 minutes past the hour, the michigan primary is just over a week away. rick santorum is leading the polls, could this spell trouble for mitt romney in his home state. >> clayton: joining us to weigh in on this is the host of fox news sunday, chris wallace. we understand you were up to go instead of bill o'reilly on "saturday night live" in the rapping performance. and what gives? you called in sick? >> yeah, listen, i thought he did great. you know, he really was very funny, but all i could think of, if you've ever been at a club or some kind of an audience participation thing, all you think to yourself is,
8:16 am
please, dear god, don't let them fall on me, don't mauck me-- and i remember seeing the play and come out to the audience, keep those cats away from me. >> dave: you're right. he did a nice job and perfectly uncomfortable with what was happening there. the politics now, rick santorum at or near the lead nationally in the polls. leading in michigan, a problem for mitt romney, as you know, his home state and some are whispering now that if santorum wins michigan, some could call for a new g.o.p. candidate. is there any possibility of this happening in leading to this, disputed contended convention? >> well, yes, there's certainly a possibility of it and it's absolutely the case that some top believes are talking about it. this is an if, if romney were to lose. michigan is his home state, his father was the governor
8:17 am
there for three terms, it's an important swing state. if romney couldn't be beat santorum in a republican primary, how would he have any chance of beating barack obama in a general election contest in michigan? and there are some people who are saying, one, romney would be very damaged, two, santorum and gingrich would have a very hard time, maybe not any chance of beating obama and that there would be, certainly, there's be a call. whether it would happen or not for one of the party elders, one of the people we were all talking about a year ago, for instance, jeb bush, the governor governor of florida, to get into the race and i will tell you the thinking is advanced enough that they have looked and there are a bunch of big states, like california, like new jersey, and in several other smaller states, where the filing deadline has not been get yet. a candidate could be on the ballots and might get enough delegates to throw it to an
8:18 am
open convention in tampa in august and we'll have karl rove on the show and he thinks it's a crazy idea and i'll ask it again. >> clayton: might be a sliver of a chance. i know promos work. i caught a promo for fox news sunday your interview with former speaker of the house, newt gingrich, i've got to watch that, interestingly when georgia, the polling, straw poll showing that rick santorum is ahead in newt gingrich's back yard. what do you think he'll make of that? >> well, we'll ask him about it. that would be devastating were that to happen. gingrich has, you know, this is the darnedest campaign i've been seen and i've been covering national politics since 1976. gingrich less than a month ago was the front runner for the nomination and now hanging on by his fingernails, he's been up and down twice, and the question is, does he have a third act? we'll be talking to him at the top of the hour about that, if
8:19 am

>> welcome back, 23 minutes past the hour. a drug can help cure leukemia in kids and many are told they may have to go without it because of a massive shortage. doctors and parents are concerned even though the f.d.a. stepped in and supplies won't be sold as quickly as needed. joining us is owen mcmasters diagnosed with leukemia is here, and his dad, dr. kelly mcmasters, a cancer surgeon and we appreciate you both being here from louisville, kentucky right now. doctor, start with you, the drug is called methotrexate and it's fairly inexpensive and that's a part of the problem. >> that's a big part of the problem. i have a vile of it it here. i don't know if you can see that. >> juliet: we can. >> this doeses $1.50 it's a
8:25 am
generic drug no longer on patent, it's been around for 50 years and there's little incentive for pharmaceutical companies to manufacture the drug because they don't make any profit on it. and this is part of the problem for shortages of the not only this drug, but 283 other drugs, many of which are absolutely critical for treatment of cancer patients and other patients with critical illnesses. >> juliet: owens, you've been going through chemotherapy and dealing with this now, how are you feeling? how are you to go? >> i'm doing all right. >> juliet: you're doing all right. >> and like stick through it. >> juliet: and you really want this drug to be back into your system because it's helping you? >> yes. >> juliet: all right. doctor, the thing about this drug is that it is very effective in these patients, is it not? >> yes, and all is a type of leukemia in children, the most common kind of cancer in
8:26 am
children and mettotrexate, even though it's a 50-year-old drug, it's critical. with it 80 to 90% of the children will be cured of cancer, without it, it won't. >> juliet: from a personal perspective, the government is jumping in on so many things. you would think this would be something, you know, cure kids of cancer. at least helping to cure most kids of cancer if they get this medicine you would think there would be something to do to up this process. here is a statement from the f.d.a. it says the issue of met mettotrexate has been with f.d.a. hoping to ramp up. doctor, your concern it's not enough in time. >> f.d.a. has known more than six months and aggressively talking about it and not fixing the problem. >> juliet: talking about it. >> it's an absolute national disgrace, when the united states cannot produce a cheap,
8:27 am
50-year-old chemotherapy drug that's absolutely needed to cure children of cancer when i have friends in ecuador, india, and argentina who are calling me up and offering to get the drug for me because it's available in third world countries. >> juliet: owen, i want to ask you, a lot of people, they may not know children who are going through what you're doing there. hopefully there are adults out there listening to this. what are you going through? give us an example of a typical day for you. >> usually i'll, you get up and ill h'll go to the hospitalo get my chemo and come back home and i'll kind of feel tired and a little sick to my stomach and warn out. >> juliet: are you able to go to school and play with friends. >> no, i can't go to school. >> juliet: you can't fw to school. doctor, this has got to be, you know, and owen, this has
8:28 am
got to be u'a big boy, this has got to be really, really heart breaking for you to deal with this and stressful on your family. >> well, having cancer for owen is hard enough, but, having to think that maybe he won't have the chemotherapy that he needs is even worse. i think the pharmaceutical industry should be given a couple of months to fix this problem voluntarily, if they can't, then there needs to be an independent commission that's set up of hospitals, of doctors, of pharmaceutical industry, of the f.d.a. that can all work toward a solution to this problem. >> juliet: absolutely. i'm with you on that one and owen, we're going to be watching this story, okay? we're going to follow you and stay in touch with us and doctor, let us know how everything goes, okay? >> thank you, juliet. >> juliet: owen, good luck to you buddy. >> all right. >> juliet: how is this for job security. new york cannot fire bad

8:34 am
and wipes the slate clean. >> juliet: let's talk about some of the things the teachers have done and still be employed. one guy posted on facebook, a teacher who posted on facebook, referred to some kids as the devil's spawn. and wiped clean. they're making an effort to do something about it, but again, not employed, and he so, from june of 2014, no matter what you've done, yeah, that was the concession from the union, no matter what you've done, even the teachers sitening a quote, rubber room, not teaching, getting paid to not teach, you're still stuck with them and paying for them for at least another two years, until you can begin this evaluation process. and this is a problem because basically, every state in this country is facing this question. how do we evaluate teachers barely, are they actually getting through to our kids and you think, this is a good thing, what they did in new york and major cuts going to cost taxpayers millions of
8:35 am

8:46 am
has great basketball instincts unique competitive drive, and those things you may not see on a first test run. >> dave: describe for me the moment when you saw this kid and said, yeah, something special about him. i want him on my team. what was it about him? >> it's kind of a unique situation the first time i saw him he didn't overly impressed, but i got lucky because i happened to see a game two days later, he was in another gym and happened to pop in gym to see what the commotion was about and played at a high level, elevated against better competition and really rose to the challenge and you could see, one thing about jeremy, he has these things that basketball coaches, you can't teach. he really has had an instinct to play the game, got a good feel for the game, a good read on the game. and it's as if someone i know would be highly coachable. >> dave: i'm interested in what you said, he elevated playing against better competition. played in ivy league, suddenly
8:47 am
in the first eight games almost 25 points a game and almost 9 assists per game and how do you explain that performance against the best players in the world when he wasn't doing that in the ivy league? >> well, it's interesting because he's actually been doing this since high school. a senior with palo alto, led a small school team to win the state title in california and then when he got to harvard, major games where he played terrific at u-conn, dropped 30 points at u-conn in a losing effort and had some huge games at boston college right in harvard's back yard, and to be a significant player and now getting into the nba and lucky. and put in a situation where, there was opportunity, there was a necessity for some scoring, and he's just, really continued to rise, to the occasion when the game is on the line. >> dave: how about the person behind jeremy lin? we know he talks a lot about his faith. tell us about the type of man he is that allowed him to get

8:54 am
some record breaking profit numbers, throw it up on the screen. strong sales in the u.s. and china of course, because what you talked about there, lack of cars coming out of japan with the tsunami and effects there. in 2012, a big positive outlook and based on that. but i have to ask you, you bring up the point about the $7,000 check handed out to workers, we put restrictions on this for the executive paychecks, didn't we? so the top executives wouldn't see a big bump in pay and that's something that we americans were saying, look, don't want the big bonuses going to the phis if taxpayers are footing the bill. why are the taxpayers footing bills for the workers then? >> because thr he' allies of obama. huge unions are obama's friends. it's crazy, it's as if we're finishing those who work in the private sector, right? but then we're rewarding those who work for the state. why is it that people work in the private sector must face realities of recession with you yet, the people who work in unions are getting $7,000 checks? what about the taxpayers who
8:55 am
helped bail out these people? it's not as if gm is doing great. like i said, they're doing terrible around the world. in china they're slowing down and the only they did well was because of the tsunami in japan. if you look at january, their profits are down 6%, whereas honda and toyota are back up again. they're not going to be that competitive this year and not doing that well, they shouldn't be handing out $7,000 checks for union members. >> the stock price is significantly down, u.s. got a bad deal. would still need to get back up for the u.s. to recoup investment. >> that's right, right now stocks are $25, $30 less than what it needs to sell in order for taxpayers to get their money out of the company and obama likes to say that the bailout was in great success because apparently, general motors paid off their loan, but that's actually not true. they paid off the loan that we
8:56 am
gave them, with taxpayers dollars, that were in escrow in an escrow account of the treasury, basically means they paid off taxpayers with taxpayer money. essentially, like paying off my visa credit card bills with a master card. and it's not real progress, and obama likes to say that this is progress. that's not progress. >> clayton: i've made that mistake back in the day. paying off chinese food for ten years, paying it off that way. thank you for breaking this down for us. >> thank you very much. >> clayton: you bet. ahead coming up on the show, gas prices already at a record high. the former ceo of shell says it could get worse, as in $5 a gallon. he joins us the next hour. a hollywood movie based on one couple's true move story. we're going to talk to the real life couple behind the story "the vow". they say the movie leaves one key part of the story out. . >> we have the same rpp zone.

[applause]. >> that is pretty bold stuff. perhaps risky. i don't know, what do you think? friends@foxnews.com. >> clayton: that is a territory politician don't tread and, governor huckabee doesn't question a person's faith or what is in their house and the obama administration said, the latest low in a republican primary campaign, that has been fueled by distortions, ugliness and fueling pessimism and negativity from the deputy press secretary. >> dave: and he was asked later after those remarks, do you think the president is a christian? he said, quote, if the president says he's a christian, then he is krafrchristian.

capital and rick perry calling it vulture capitalism and attacking the private equity experience, mitt romney has, well, now, rick santorum turning his attention on mitt romney's job with the 1992 salt lake city olympic games, and they celebrated ten years of the job romney did, one he touts often on these stumps and here's what he says, though, is the untold truth about those gains. >> he bailed out the salt lake city olympic games by heroically going to congress and asking them for tens of millions of dollars to bail out the salt lake olympic games. [applause]. >> well, here's what his camp said, they issued a statement, and they said, sometimes when you shoot from the hip you end up shooting yourself in the foot. there is a wide gulf between seeking money for post 9/11 security at the olympics and seeking earmarks for polar bear exhibits at the pittsburgh zoo. >> clayton: santorum hit on the
9:05 am
earmarks issue, saying they, the federal government came in and bailed it out and you called upon the federal government to do that, and it is interesting, the romney campaign has not backed off saying there were federal dollars used but also were quick to point out rick santorum while senator voted for the earmark, he's now criticizing, the back and forth -- people forget their voting records? i don't know, don't dive into it well enough to know what is in there. >> dave: and the turnaround of the salt lake games was mostly about private money raising money from the private sector and, meanwhile, newt gingrich has one strategy, clearly this: he'll wait until super tuesday and he needs to win big, in the straw poll, trailing santorum. here's what newt gingrich says. >> a georgia conservative has advantage, across tennessee, alabama, arkansas, kentucky,

>> dave: welcome back, friends. with the price of gas at an average of 3.53 cents a gallon, up 31 cents since december, americans all over the country feeling it. >> clayton: yep, the pain at the pump. it hurts. but our next guest says the worst is yet to come, think the $4 we are seeing in california is bad, the gallon of gas could reach as much as $5 this year, joining us from houston, texas is former ceo of shell oil and
9:16 am
founder of citizens for affordable energy, john hofmeister. nice see you. year after year we hear about the prognostication, it will hit $5 a gallon, do you think it could happen this time? >> well i think we're at the cross-hairs of an unusual situation, that is probably -- probably can only get worse and here's why. we're the world's largest consuming nation but we now have a rival, called china. china's growth and demand for gasoline is in the millions and millions-plus barrel per day every day, going from 9 to 15 million barrels a day by 2015 because of the all of the uses of oil they have now adopted as a consumer society and we also face some of the most unpredictable, volatile, geopolitical situations, whether it is iran, iraq, sudan, you name it and there is no end in
9:17 am
sight to the geopolitics, which worries people about oil and the united states of america, the largest consumer to adopt government policies to enable domestic production to increase and meet these conditions has been nil, nada, nothing and that is unfortunate for american consumers. >> dave: are there actions the obama administration could take to start lowering the price? >> yes. but it is almost too late. even if the president gets a second term. i said to senator obama, in the summer of 2007 as he's running for president, senator, you need a robust drilling program in your first term. if you do not have a robust drilling program you will face gasoline prices when you run for re-election if you win in 2012 that will not help you one iota.
9:18 am
his response was, we're going to do biofuels. and, i said, biofuels is not going to make a difference in the gasoline price, not by 2012. you need a robust drilling program and what we have seen is anti-drilling, coming from the administration, highlighted most particularly by the moratorium in the gulf of mexico, following the bp disaster, there has been no action and it takes years to get things rolling and had he had an active program, by his second term he would have been able to point to increases in domestic production that would offset the rise in demand from china, as it relates to u.s. consumption. >> clayton: three things you list as solutions, a plan that would work, getting back, you mentioned earlier, getting back to 10 million barrels of oil per day, producing that and 3-4 million from biofuels and natural gas of which you talked about president obama supporting and drive more fuel efficient cars. when do you see any of this
9:19 am
happening? we saw all the sort of failure, i guess you could say of the chevy volt. does that rise back to buying more suvs again? >> people love suvs, but let's be clear, we used to produce 10 million barrels a day in the country and we're go 7 and i suggest, go back to 10. we know where the oil is but the government has to allow the companies to get the oil and secondly, we can turn natural gas into methyl, flex fuel engines can use coupled with ethanol from biofuel, that combination could be very powerful, offsetting opec imports and the fuel efficient imports are fuel efficient designs of vehicles and the volt is part of that, perhaps, but, more importantly, is the internal combustion engine and design of the vehicle which is already targeted to improve its mileage over the course of the decade and we can continue those practices, the goal is not to
9:20 am
worry about politics in the middle east. if we use imports from canada and mexico, as an off-set to the middle east we can take care of ourselves in north america. >> dave: he didn't listen as a senator in '07 and perhaps he's watching this morning, john hofmeister, we appreciate you being with us. >> clayton: thanks, john. >> thank you. >> clayton: we spent a year plotting a suicide attack to blow up the u.s. capital but, two years ago, his landlord alerted police about his suspicious activity, coming up. >> dave: and the real life couple behind the vow, tells us which key part of their story hollywood left out. what it has to do with religion.

9:44 am
now, step out of the shot and you get the full view, that, of course, st. peter's basilica and the basilica of the holy father and is where archbishop dolan became cardinal dolan of new york as well as 21 others. what is amazing, i think, about this experience, over a thousand from new york as well as many others from other parts of the country came to witness who is no doubt a major step for the catholic church, i would say christians and all americans, and that is a man named timothy dolan from st. louis, missouri, from wisconsin and now new york has taken on a position of leadership in the way that has not been seen in recent times. not only taking leadership, and a passionate role among catholics, the ethics for the church of the united states of america, no matter what denomination you are. >> dave: what responsibility comes with being a cardinal? >> that's a great question,
9:45 am
dave, because archbishop, now cardinal dolan said it's not about honor, it's not a triumphant moment, no. this is a -- exactly what you said, dave, responsibilities. he's going back to a local church where he'll be pastor, where schools will have to be closed and churches will have to be closed, people are coming out of a real detachment from the church in a lot of ways even with the sex abuse scandal and he's coming back, saying i'm not going to impose the faith, but am welcoming you home, see what a learned and have found. a challenge, no doubt. >> on the front page of the "new york post" it says, when he was asked, what is the first thing he's going to do? go get a beer! you know, what did the rest of the cardinals, getting a sense of the rest of the church what they think about him, you know, the other cardinals there, look
9:46 am
at him with wide-eyed and curiously? >> that's right. you know, it is a great question, juliett. he said i'll get a beer as you said. and also said, i will have a glass of grapa, a strong drink before talking to the pope and the other cardinals. he was selected, before he was cardinal, the day before he became cardinal to be a spokesman among all the cardinals and giving a talk about what is called the new evangelization, what the pope is calling it, how to bring the same old message of jesus christ in a society with new challenges, but, also, new opportunities. like you said, the other cardinals are probably looking like, this is not the kind of guy we're used to. talking about going to get a beer and is joking around, no doubt, but does it with great intention and that is, he wants to show people, that he is just a guy like everybody else. and, that is who he is, and, so, yes, he jokes around, always has a line for the press and behind
9:47 am
the joking comes very strong ideas. as we saw, recently in the whole debate, for example, with the health and human serviceman date, he is willing to steak on tough issues, we'll see if he's able to do that in a way that is also welcoming to people who have been outside the faith for so long, it's an exciting time. we could call it, perhaps, a new spring for the vatican. a new spring for catholics in the church. we'll see if it turns out to be such a positive thing as it looks to be, right now. >> dave: whether it is he or new cardinal o'brien from baltimore, why is humility so important? he says i don't want this to go to my head, says the cardinal dolan, literally. >> yeah, you know. absolutely. he said before giving a talk he felt like he was walking around with a bowling ball on top of his head. the weight, and he's able to communicate in vivid images but he said i don't want it to go to my head. i want to make sure that, you know, what, whether a cardinal in red, a priest in black or a
9:48 am
